Is it time for you to visit your NHS Dentist in Oxford?

People often delay going to see their NHS Dentist in Oxford because they “just don’t have the time” or they are nervous, or they “just forgot”.  Neglecting to have regular check-ups with your dental practitioner could result in you needing more intense or complicated treatment later on, which will most likely take up more of your time and make you more nervous.

nhs-dentist-oxfordAt Studental we will endeavour to put you at ease from the moment that you walk through the door, with our friendly professional team on hand to answer any questions that you might have.  If you want to find out more information about any of the treatments that we have to offer then it is easy to book a consultation appointment with one of our dental practitioners either over the phone, or through our website.

How regularly should you be visiting our dental practice?

Your teeth are as unique as your fingerprints, so how often you need to see your NHS Dentist in Oxford is down to your individual circumstances.  However; you should generally be visiting our dental practice once or twice a year for a regular check-up if you are not receiving any ongoing treatment.  When you have ongoing treatment it is likely that you will need to attend our practice more often, but this is something that our dental practitioners will be able to advise you on.

Regular appointments will keep your teeth strong

When you visit our NHS Dentist in Oxford we will carry out a routine examination on your mouth and be able to inform you of any underlying or present issues that you may have. Sometimes we will recommend that you see one of our hygienists to have your teeth professionally cleaned. This involves removing any tartar and hardened plaque that you have not been able to remove from your teeth through regular brushing.  Not having this plaque removed can lead to things such as gingivitis and other gum disease.

What other treatments do we offer besides general dentistry?

At Studental we do not just limit ourselves to helping our patients with general dentistry. We also have several cosmetic treatments available which can help when it comes to repairing chipped or damaged teeth, as well as straightening out crooked ones. Sometimes braces will be more suitable for our patients when it comes to teeth straightening, and we have more than one type of appliance available, so you can make sure that you get the right one for you.

When teeth fall out it can be distressing, which is why we have several treatment options when it comes to replacing missing teeth.  Whether you are missing one tooth or all of them, we will be able to replace your teeth effectively, leaving you with a complete, natural looking smile. Implants are available to those patients who wish to replace their teeth in a more permanent way, as these implants are fixed into the jawbone and irremovable, unlike dentures and bridges.



Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest government guidelines.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine exams, treatments and hygiene appointments.

Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.

We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and booking emergency appointments. Dental emergencies include:

  • Severe pain for over 48 hours
  • Facial Swelling
  • Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We will be able to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of the team will be in touch.

Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
